Study: Less Than Half Of Arizona Graduates Can Get Into State's Colleges

A newly released study from the Arizona Board of Regents found less than half of the state’s high school graduates can get into its public universities.

The research found 46.5 percent of Arizona high school students were eligible for admission – close to the number the last time this study was done, in 2009.

Eileen Klein, president of the Arizona Board of Regents discussed the results.
